Anyone have a recommendation for a cleaning product/technique that won't damage the face-shield on my helmet?
I did search, but if it's been discussed I couldn't find it. Figured I'd ask before trying anything.
Thanks!

Soak a paper towel in hot water and lay it on the shield for a bit, keep wetting it if necessary. They'll come off after a bit with no problems.
This works great but I use a washcloth and then a towel for the windshield on my road bike. Hydrate those bugs and they come off easy. I also use Rain-X on my shields.

RBM has the good advice! But if you clean your shield and whatever else as soon as you get home from a ride it will be MUCH easier! From an old pilot who learned NEVER to put away a plane with bugs on the windshield and leave it for a WEEK! :mad::lol:

I just use plain water every ride then Plexus about once a month or two. I go to the local thrift store and buy 100% cotton face or hand towels for $.50 or a dollar that still feel soft to the face, then replace them every few months or so. Synthetics or blends WILL scratch a face shield! Paper towels are even worse (if you wipe with them...just laying a wet one on the shield is fine).

This must be a popular method because I use it too.....cheap and easy. I love plexus but it's kind of pricey to use frequently and I'm kind of cheap.

I've checked with the manufacturer of Rain X years ago and according to them it's safe on polycarbonates, like the face shield and windshields.
